We spent 4 days in these mountains and saw some amazing panoramas. Each day is so different than the last with the fluctuating weather. There were also many beautiful birds. Many activities are available including hot air balloons, hiking and mountain biking.

I have been to the Drakensberg before, but during a week long torrential downpour and we never saw a sign of a mountain. This trip was different, cool, crisp winter mornings, unending views topped with a beautiful blue cloudless South African Sky. Solace for the...More

The Drakebsberg mountains must be one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in the world and should not be missed when visiting South Africa. Hiked the Amphitheatre via the ladders, and it was absolutely amazing! Quite an accessible slope which does not require immense fitness.

Hi Faten, this would likely be referring to a walk from the hotel, which is already at quite an altitude.
